Nov 04 2016 (12:16)   Railway targets electrification of 24,000 km track in five years

Electrification of majority of routes will help railways in reducing the energy bill, says Suresh Prabhu
Setting an ambitious target of electrification of 24,000 km long track in the next five years, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on Thursday said it will help in running trains in a faster and cleaner manner.
Besides, electrification of majority of routes will help railways in reducing the energy bill considerably, he said.
expenditure on energy is the second highest after salary and pension bill. Expansion of electrified routes across the country will also help in reducing the energy bill as we have committed to reduce the energy cost," he said at global seminar on Mission Electrification and Decarbonisation of Indian Railways here.
Describing the event as an "important milestone", Prabhu said, "When railways started its operation it used horses to pull the train. Now we are using horsepower to move trains at faster pace. So it is back to roots."
Currently about 2000 km track is being electrified in a year and the aim is to reach 4,000 km per year by 2017-18 and 6,000 km in subsequent year.
Talking about mission electrification, Prabhu said, "The target is electrification of about 24,000 km in the next five years and the electrification will also reduce the energy bill. We have tied up with three PSUs to increase the pace of route electrification. With the expansion of electrification of majority of rail network, railways will run trains in a faster and cleaner manner."
In order too fast track the pace of electrification Railways have joined hands with three PSUs - IRCON, RITES and PGCIL.
He also asked the three PSUs to compete with each other to complete the electrification work in faster way.
Railways expect to reduce fuel bill by Rs 10,000 cr annually through electrification of major routes.
Expressing concern over the ever-increasing pollution, he said, "Carbon emission is a major challenge in India and also in the world. We have reached level where carbon cannot be absorbed. We have to reduce the greenhouse gas significantly to prevent ill-effect of pollution on human lives."
He said using clean energy including solar and wind power is key to reduce the emission level.
"Through electrification trains speed will go up. We have framed a time frame. Three PSUs have been roped in to do the electrification. It is very important for the environment point of view."
Prabhu also highlighted railway's partnership with various ministries including power, science and technology, environment to achieve its goal.
A new App for monitoring energy conservation scheme was also launched at the event.

Oct 17 2016 (06:54)   Track electrification up to Mangaluru by Dec.

Work up to theNetravathibridge hasalready been executed
The track-electrification work up to Mangaluru is progressing as per schedule and is likely to be completed by December end.
The electrified track up to Cheruvathur was commissioned a few months ago and now the Southern Railway is working overtime to complete electrification of the 85-km track up to Mangaluru, which is part of the 307-km Shoranur-Mangaluru stretch.
Railway sources told The Hindu that electrification up to the Netravathi bridge, near Mangaluru, had already been executed. The focus now was on the leftover work at the Mangaluru Central station yard and the nearby Mangaluru Junction, which was expected to be completed within schedule, they said. The Kerala State Electricity Board has commenced laying underground 110 kV electric lines so as to feed the traction sub-station at Cheruvathur and near Elathur in Kozhikode by December itself, while the works on the sub-station at Uppala could take two more months, they said.
Upon completion, the authorities would approach the
Office of the Chief Railway Safety Commissioner in Bengaluru for the formal commissioning of the line which would mark the completion of the mainline track electrification works in Kerala.
Once commissioned, Railways would use electric locomotives for 75 per cent of the freight and passenger traffic, thereby opening avenues to run additional services, including Mainline Electric Multiple Unit (MEMU), that would offer cheaper and swift travel for short-distance passengers. Besides, Railways are also planning to set up an electric loco shed in Mangaluru to carry out urgent mechanical works.
Commissioning of the electrified stretch will mark a major milestone in the Railways drive to reduce fuel expenses, ensure punctual rail services, and introducing new train services in the sector.
